Pillow Soft Rolls

I saw this recipe on Loves to Eat weblog & I thought they looked wonderful. I had previously made dinner rolls & they turned out a little hard and tough after baking, while these were soft, light, delicate & delicious! These were easy as well, making them quick to make with only a few hours notice!

I made half the original recipe below, baking up 12 rolls.

Ingredients
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 6 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 7 to 7-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Directions
  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, shortening, eggs, sugar, salt & 3 c. flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth & elastic, about 6-8 minutes (dough will be sticky). Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover & let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover & let rise until doubled, about 30 min.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks.
